It was the year 2016 when Royal Enfield launched a very distinctive-looking motorcycle, something that was a complete departure from the company’s style of motorcycles. After riding on the success of Classics and Bullets for decades, Royal Enfield introduced adventure riding to its fans for the first time and there has been no looking back since. The Himalayan could be given substantial credit for popularising adventure riding in India. ADVs had been limited to big bike manufacturers which were not affordable for many but the Himalayan was the most affordable ADV in the country for some years.

Fast forward to the year 2021 and the Himalayan now has even more to show for itself than it did in its first generation.

In its MY2021 version, the Himalayan remains identical to the motorcycle we rode over a year ago when it was launched with BS-VI

Kwasi Kwarteng becomes first black Conservative Secretary of State

Boris Johnson has appointed the Conservatives’ first black Secretary of State after Alok Sharma relinquished the role of Business Secretary to focus on hosting this year’s COP26 climate conference. Kwasi Kwarteng, who previously served under Mr Sharma, will now step up to run the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). He had previously been tipped to take over as president of the global climate summit in Glasgow, but Mr Sharma, who has been leading on the preparations since February last year, has been asked to take on the role full-time. Anne-Marie Trevelyan, who lost her place in Cabinet as a result of the Department for International Trade merging with the Foreign Office, has also returned to fill Mr Kwarteng’s former role as minister for business, energy and clean growth.

Lotus Esprit Jim Clark Edition Honors a Racing Hero

From Car and Driver

From the September 1992 issue of Car and Driver.

“Although the past may not repeat itself, it does rhyme.” -Mark Twain

If, like us, your recollection of automotive lore‑the firing order of a 1970 Boss 302, for example—exceeds your recollection of ninth-grade algebra, then the green and yellow livery of this Lotus Esprit Turbo SE should rhyme. Okay, so it’s more Ginsberg than Frost. But it should at least set to murmuring a tiny voice in your head that says, “I’ve seen this before.”

And you have. Although you may not see it again, because Lotus will build only twenty of the Esprit Jim Clark Limited Editions pictured here.
